Second U-21 World Championship round is coming fast. Juniors are coming to Germany to keep fight on short track in Gustrow. In Poznań we saw more than terrific performance of Polish riders and a lot of specialists said that secound round of EKO-DIR FIM Speedway U-21 Championship could be similar.
The fight for junior world championship has started on July 23rd. On heavy track on Golęcin stadium in Poznań, Maksym Drabik was the best - he didn’t lose any race and finished competition with 21 points. Bartosz Smektała, who has 6 points less, is going to chase his friend. Also, Dominik Kubera is closely following them, and Kacper Woryna has something to prove. Will he be part of Polish battle in Gustrow?
- Competition in Gustrow is going to be as interesting as some SGP rounds. I think that Poles will dominate again, also with Kacper Woryna. It seems that Maksym Drabik and Bartosz Smektała will stay on their positions and rest of Polish riders will come to the GC top. Now nobody has any points to lose, so it’s going to be great tournament – said Jacek Frątczak.
Who will try to chase the best junior nation? In Poznań, Javgenij Kostygov, who suddenly finished on podium had a great performance.
- For obvious reasons, I’ll support Jack Holder (Jacek Frątczak is Get Well Toruń menager). Similar to Brady Kurtz' case, he needed only one good match in Polish league, well fitted bike and he showed that he could be very fast. Also, Robert Lambert has one U-21 medal and he’s going to be dangerous too. I reckon, competition could be more than interesting. If anyone else will win, it won’t be suprise – commented Frątczak.
After round in Gustrow, best juniors in the world will come to Pardubice, where the grand final will take place.
